We live on greens and grow some of our lettuce, our kale, and our chard. Our spring kale is almost finished for this season. Our chard is ready to harvest as are our spring lettuces.
We use the kale and Swiss chard in a salad, smoothie, or cooked in place of spinach. The lettuce we never have enough. Between the three of us, we easily eat four to six heads a day. We have planted summer lettuces under our tomatoes, peppers, corn, and even some of our flowers this year. Maybe it will be shaded enough to not be bitter this summer.
